The market for Autozone (NYSE:AZO) stock pulled back from a fresh all-time high ahead of the FQ4 earnings release because there was cause for concern. Not only was the stock trading at an above-average P/E for the S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY) and well above its peer Advance Auto Parts (NYSE:AAP) but the fundamental set-up favored Advanced Auto Parts because of the channel mix.

New York quarterback Daniel Jones lofted a sideline throw directly toward Luvu with the game tied 6-6. But the ball floated abnormally long, Luvu mistimed his jump and Jones’ pass sailed through the linebacker’s outstretched hands and out of bounds. “The Carolina Panthers have to win the turnover battle to win, like every team that’s i… Read More “Panthers losing turnover battle, and games.
